    Headphone speakers

    I am looking for helmet speakers, Bluetooth to connect to my tom tom sat nag.

    I do not want a microphone, nor do I want a unit connecting to the outside of my helmet, I just want small discreet sound only. 

    Any recommendations?

    I already have intercom set for my other helmet when shmbo is with me, this is for myself only.

    I think the closest you're going to get to that is wireless earbuds, something like this:

    Or these:

    I have a set of the first ones for when I'm mowing the lawn as my Sony XM3s made my ears a bit "clammy" in hot weather.  Don't believe the claims about noise reduction though.  The ones that hook over your ears would probably be best though as you'll be much less likely to lose them when putting on or removing your helmet.

    I've got the Cardo Freecom 2. It comes with 40 mm speakers. That's probably the largest that will fit in most helmets. I'm happy with the system but have nothing to compare to and my hearing isn't that great so I really can't say if it's a superior system or not.

    Three things that have improved things for me: I wear earplugs with 25db NRR. This cuts way down on external noise so I can hear the music better. I found an app for my android phone that boosts the bluetooth volume. I've used the custom audio adjustment on my phone to compensate for my hearing loss.
